James Bond inspired theme song - I teamed up with the incredibly talented actor singer songwriter Ben Gerrard (of Hollyoaks fame) to write and produce this James Bond 007 pastiche track titled 'Dear Life'. (© 2016 Jon Brooks / Ben Gerrard). Recorded and produced at Jon Brooks Studio, Stockport, UK.

ABOUT BEN: Ben hit the small screen in 2003 on Channel 4 soap "Hollyoaks" and became a household name. However, his love of writing and performing music led to him amicably leaving the show to pursue a career he had always dreamed of… Having been in various bands since the age of 13, Ben has toured the entire UK on numerous occasions including a number of headline tours and support slots for Twin Atlantic, Wheatus, Zebra Head and The Foundations to name a few... Ben took time out to focus on his family and has now returned to the music scene solo with a blend of mature pop fused with his rock tones, perfected through years of punk... The results are breathtaking!
